I know it's your vehicle, but generally up badging is frowned upon. Dodge has yet to commit to making an SRT8 version of the Durango so you can't make yours into one.
Also, there are no inexpensive bolt ons that will make your 5.7 perform like the 6.4. The only thing you might get close with will be a supercharger.
As for the Towhook edition, it isn't an SRT8. It has the Pentastar 3.6L v6 and makes 290 HP. Hardly SRT like.

Hey man how's the progress going? I'm excited to hear about your project and would love to hear how's it going. I don't know if you've got your mind set on a 6.4 swap, but another option is the 6.7L stroker engine from Arrington Performance. It's based on a modified 5.7 block, so you wouldn't have to swap out the entire drive train, it would fit the stock 5.7 mounts and tranny. Here's they're site:

http://www.shophemi.com/c-457-57-hem...7-stroker.aspx

And don't worry about what the other guys say, it's your truck so build it how you want. I love the idea of an "SRT" Durango since I need a 3 row vehicle an JGC only has 2. Since Chry Cor hasn't built one, the only option is to build your own. I lack the money and skills to do so, so my stock RT is probably about as close to an SRT as I'm ever gonna get, but I'm living vicariously through your project. Keep up the good work, bro!

Looks suhweet man! I'm stoked for you! Did you end up having to change the trans and wiring harness for the 6.4 to fit? I'm in San Diego by the way, so if youre ever in the area, I'd love to come check it out in person! I'm so jealous!

Fantastic work- I have been thinking of this conversion myself. Dodge should be making this vehicle.
And yeah, you CAN badge this as an SRT with the mods you have done. Kudos
